Facebook confirms that this is not a hack, and that it was not a security breach. They are now looking for the Facebook account in question, and are confident the attacker is no longer in possession of your data. Until then, if you notice any suspicious activity on your account, or if you receive a password change request, please disregard the request and remove the two extensions from your browser.
Facebook is working to ensure that users affected by the malware are not affected. It is in the process of securing the affected users’ accounts. “We are working to protect any further users who may have been affected,” the spokeswoman said. Facebook is also notifying law enforcement officials and is tracking the infection. It will continue to enhance its security procedures.
“We are working closely with law enforcement officials and are conducting a thorough investigation into the source and scope of the attack,” a Facebook spokeswoman said in a statement. “At this time, we’re aware of the malware on a small number of Facebook users’ devices and on a small number of Facebook-owned websites, including Facebook, Instagram and Messenger.”
Facebook is now investigating a major malware infection that has occurred recently. The social network said it was recently infected by a malware supplier and is looking into the issue. Facebook is tracking the infection and is determining the extent of the attack. The number of affected users has increased significantly.
